Little by little the citizens of this country are getting sick and tired of being abused and being disrespected by the same people that gave them the positions and the jobs they are now holding.
The dictatorship government of Clark County as a whole (including Mesquite, North Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City) is a shameful government to exist in any city in the United States of America.
People are sentenced to long stretches in the state prison system — people who do not belong or do not deserve to be in that position, causing their families to suffer by seeing one of their family members paying for a crime they did not commit.
Allowing police officers to create crimes to get even with people that do not want to join the long list of snitches at their disposal seems to be a common practice — and if someone tells those Gestapo agents that they do not know their target, the response will scare any living creature: “It does not matter; you can create or fabricate anything,”
they say; and if the person refuses anyway, there is enough cocaine in the police vault to set someone up before or after an undercover police car parked in front of the narcotic detective’s (Max Huggins Jr.) home is ripped-off of another two kilos (it is always two kilos of the snow either when they want to set someone up or when they want to help a fellow officer in distress who wants to buy an 18-wheeler to secure his retirement), and the result of the investigation is never
released to the media.
The prosecutors CANNOT EVER lose a case; they own the legal system and do not want to lose that privilege of owning the life of people they hold in their hand.
One of the things that is most notable in the courthouse is the dress code that should be maintained by the people that appear before a judge. No shorts or tank tops are allowed in the courtroom, and shoes are required.
But those elite attorneys who perhaps have donated lots of money to different judicial campaigns are allowed to appear before a judge in tennis shoes or sneakers and a T-shirt instead of he typical courtroom attire, giving the impression that money matters.
“We are proud to go to work at the courthouse dressed properly and acting as dignified as possible to give the court and the judges the respect we believe they deserve, even if we do not agree with their modus operandi,” we wrote in our June 22nd Editorial, and even if we had many comments that agreed with our opinion, a few people have shown their disagreement with it in person.
And that is the problem; as long as we keep our mouth shut and accept their modus operandi, we are welcome in the Regional Justice Center.
We have on numerous occasions expressed our opinion on the corrupted police department, but that is our duty; that is our job to report the news and to investigate what “is under the rug.”
Who wants to read a newspaper when the only time a scandal is reported is when a big shot, one of the powers that be, wants to destroy someone and gets the scandal over to their favorite puppet on the daily newspaper.
When police detective Bryan Yant killed Trevon Cole, an alleged small marijuana dealer who was naked in his bathroom when the detective forced his way into the apartment Cole shared with his pregnant girlfriend, there was no demonstration and no anger in the community, something which only happens in a city that is not under a dictatorship like Clark County; the “community” — whether Black, White, or Blue (or any other color) or any nationality, is “too busy” playing the slot machines or blackjack, but the Las Vegas Tribune was there to defend the family of the young Black man that was crucified by a coward carrying a badge and a gun.
For a very long time we have been writing about our police department and reminding our community that we have one of if not the finest police departments if we could just separate the rank and file from the administration, but that is impossible because the powers that be have made sure that Las Vegas has two police departments under one as happens in dictatorship governments where the community, the citizens, do not count.
